It’s with great pleasure that on 11th and 12th October we attended the 2nd JRC ECML Workshop: Interaction Map (here you can download the brochure of the event) of the Joint Research Centre of the European Commission
The workshop was held in the new control room crisis JRC inaugurated President Barraso last March 16
For the occasion, we have developed a POC in collaboration with scientists at the center through which the participants of the workshop who personified the authorities in the control room in a crisis simulation where with the help of our PixelSense were decided dislocations forces in ‘area affected by the crisis.
Thanks to our application PixelSense and delegates were able to interact with the mapping software deciding how the public would have had to evacuate the area affected by the disaster and how the forces stationed on the territory should interact to facilitate the discharge together with the various possible actions aimed to stem the disaster.
It was a truly unique experience that gave us the opportunity to test the potential of a collaboration tool which PixelSense only in the context of real life.
I just finished writing on my technical blog of how to have a high level of interaction between units PixelSense device and Windows Phone 7 or in general any smart phone and immediately came to my mind an image of an application made by Surface Garage that you can see in the picture
Interesting isn’t it? But how do the models shoot? Well imagine if instead of an inanimate object you could use a smart phone and if it sprouted wings and a nice button on the display “shoot”. Well today it’s all possible! If you were intereaati a user experience like that to tie to your brand and if you have the appropriate budget free to contact me to discuss
We participated with pleasure at the Digital Signage & Visual Communication Forum held in Milan on May 21 at the Mercedes Benz Center hosted the Philips stand in participation with our partner Digital Forest.
In this occasion, we have shown some applications based on Surface SDK 2.0, including bePresenter, and some proof of concept designed for the new Samsung Sur40 for Microsoft Surface that in this case was perfectly running on a monitor multitouch by Philips without the unique feature of the SUR40 of the object recognition.
